This is usually caused by either the tab size or its positioning that places it slightly outside of the 'analysis' tab area.
Thanks so much!!!
I reduced the size of the tab panel under the analysis tab and its working perfect now.
When I am in layout mode, it seems fine like the way I set it up....(tab 1:Main Address, tab 2:Additional Info, tab 3:Kids, Home, Pets)
but then when I am in browse mode, it shows the fields that are in the second tab on top of the first tab (Main address). So it is illegible!!!
I used to have it set up perfect, I must have messed around with something and now I can't get it to the previous layout.
please help I am new with this and have a database of 10,000 that i cannot afford to lose!
The easiest way to test to see if a layout object (including another tab control) is properly contained by a tab control, is to select it in layout mode and drag it a few pixels in one direction or another. objects fully enclosed by the tab control borders will move when you the tab control. Items that extend some part of themselves outside the border will not move with the tab control and you can then see which ones to re-size or re-position.
i did do that and the entire box moves with the three tabs...so what i am saying is that all three tabs are within one box and i can't figure out why the field names are on top of one another when im in browse mode, but they are not on top of one another in layout mode.
does that make sense? i can send a picture if that helps
Ok i have just fixed the problem with the little fill pattern tool.
now in layout mode on my first tab called (Main Address) i have the following:
in the second tab called (Addiional Info) i have the following:
level of education
NOW the only fields that are changing when i am changing tabs are the first one, from address to income!!!
the others remain loyal to the second tab fields
You can also get unexpected results if even one pixel of your tab control extends into the header. If you are close to the line, try moving it down a few pixels on the layout.
